A series of pools studded with the hoofmarks of cattle, probably in the bed of a dry season river channel. Such pools were often excavated in the holes of river channels to provide water sources for cattle and people during the drought. An image showing a dry season forest pool from the same film was published suggesting a location in Lou country.
